TBF-QA-2 Queen Alexandra's Circlet

2.  Queen Alexandra's Circlet

   As was debated on this board [Royal Jewels of the World] a few months ago, Queen Alexandra did have her own circlet made. It was made in the “early months of her widowhood” to replace The Diamond Diadem and Queen Victoria's Regal Circlet, which had both passed to Queen Mary upon George V's accession.

   The circlet was made in November 1910, and originally included the Cullinan VI stone and a large “round brilliant”.

   This circlet passed to her daughter, Queen Maud of Norway, upon Alexandra's death, with the Cullinan VI and large round brilliant removed.
